memories and carries them, back to
1917. They make an attempt to meet
her through the manager, who served
in their regiment overseas. The scene
shifts and it is 1917. Roger end Dick,
young lieutenants, are both in love
with Emilia Vslaty, sister of Rabin

leaving for France Dick proposes and
Emilia, who doesn’t know hdr own

time as the ship speeds toward
France, the center of attention from
a group of admiring officers. Emilia
manages to keep the officers at safe
distance throughout the trip, al

Emilia, tremulous and gay, fol

tresses. The rows on rows of seats
filled with sober-faced, brown-clad
young officers frightened her for the
moment: then suddenly they became
for her, once and fer aa long aa she
should be there, comrades of Robin:
friends of Robin. The lifting and
thrill of heart that wopld have come
to her if her brother had been there
with Dick and Roger by him came
suddenly to her; and that feeling of
oneness, of unitedneas with her audi
ence, which is the greatest reward of
performance, came to her suddenly,
too, never quite to leave her again
whenever she stood on a platform.
Halfway in the song, her epee
caught a glitter of a shoulder-bar.
Could it be Ho bin —Roger? At this
minute, alone, far front everyone ebe
had loved, she was closer In spirit
to Roger Scarlett than she had ever
been. If he had come In; If he had
walked up the aisle then, at the
close of the song, perhaps she might
have been bis for always ... or
perhaps not. Perhaps it was only one
of those transient moods of love that
all young girls know. But in any
event, the magic did not evoke
Robin; it did not bring her Reger.
She finished her song, and came
down from rite platform, to find her
tends gfuaped in strong, magnetic
young bands, to hear Dick Stoddard’s
gay triumphant voice, charming,
masculine despite the Slight echo of
* "Say, Emilia, you winner! You
peach! You knocked ’em for a goal!
Am I proud?”
He bent close, poenemiv* and
merry. He wasn’t Roger or Robin,
but he was nearly as good, with the
added excitement of novelty and of
hie sweeping charm.

flourish, “Is the famous songstress

“You would be the one to find her,

It was wartime. They were in one

publicly in the case; in another mo

of R all, she had klsred Roger, too.
“I feel lonely and left out," said
Diek. But she didn’t kiss Dick. She
laughed at him over her shoulder
with a girlish coquetry which had
been a little intensified by the adora
tions of her voyage.
They looked each other over after
that—the long, hidden looks of war
time, when under all the delight of
reunion was the hurt of parting soon
to be; when one must be gay for
the other's sake, on the strong cur
rents of Immediacy and excitement.
Robin looked well and brown. He
was a little steadier, a little more
dominant, as indeed they all were;
the rule of the world had been tossed
into their young hands, and their
generation waa taking up what had
been given It Emilia and Robin sat
a little agwrt, as always, while Roger
and Dick, friends heartily enough to
sit appearance, talked to each other
—about war, the chances of
getting to the front, about their men,
about anything. They were new
enough to the war to talk about it
not tn have to hide its everlasting
presence in their minds with laugh
ter and the little momentary things.
“And father? What did you hear of

years they had lived next door ta

He was stronger than most men; she

across the table, catching hts look

he was wiser. And she sett the arms
of his protection closer around her.

said. Interrupting the stream of bis
silent concentration on her.
“There’s nothing to tell, my dear,”
he said. “I'm being transferred into

some months of the war building
